Product overview

MatrixScan Find helps frontline workers and customers instantly locate items using smart devices via an augmented reality (AR) interface. It scans multiple items simultaneously and highlights the one needed using an AR overlay.

This reduces search time and improves accuracy compared to manual search.

MatrixScan Find includes pre-built and pre-tested AR user interface (UI) elements, together with Scandit’s fast, accurate barcode scanning.

It reduces development time of an optimized AR application from months to hours and allows you to take advantage of Scandit’s experience across computer vision and AR interaction design. All you have to do is set the search criteria.

MatrixScan Find won a prestigious IF Design Award 2024 in the user experience (UX) category. The independent iF Design Award is recognized as a symbol of outstanding design worldwide. MatrixScan Find was chosen from nearly 11,000 entries from 56 countries.

Integration with SparkScan

MatrixScan Find is designed to perform a specific task within a larger workflow. Its primary function is to identify/locate an item. However, it can’t be used to scan the item once it’s located.

To create a complete scanning solution that includes both item location and scanning, it is recommended to integrate MatrixScan Find into SparkScan.

This integration provides a seamless workflow and ensures that the entire process is covered by an end-to-end, out-of-the-box scanning solution.

If SparkScan is not your preferred scanning solution, you can integrate MatrixScan Find with your existing scanning solution (for example, based on Scandit’s default barcode capture mode).
